An Old Old Story

'An Old Old Story' is a monthly podcast. Each episode deals with a theme particularly relevant to the month it's released. Episodes typically consist of a few opening thoughts, an interview, and essay. Though we hope the conversation is fresh and new, the ideas themselves are not. These are things that have been and will be wrestled with long before and after us. Perhaps T.S. Eliot said it best in East Coker:

"And what there is to conquer
By strength and submission, has already been discovered
Once or twice, or several times, by men whom one cannot hope
To emulate—but there is no competition— There is only the fight to recover what has been lost
And found and lost again and again"

Well, it's November, and one year from now the nation will be heading back to the polls. We at An Old, Old Story thought it was an appropriate time to probe the relationship between Christians and politics. These days, a faith once seen as subversive for their abstention from political processes is now associated with all the polemics of national politics. It's become embedded in party platforms and agendas. So, it seemed like it was time to reassess. We're looking for echoes James A. Harding...

It's October. Time for goblins, ghosts, demons, and yes, witches. On this month's episode, we look at the cultural and political practice of witch hunting. Mass panic. Fear-mongering. Scapegoating. Nothing captures our attention quite like having a really good enemy or devil to blame for our troubles. A sense of identity is important to any group. But what happens when marking the divide between Insiders and Outsiders becomes an act of hatred, exclusion, fear, and violence?
